. look at pakistan where the president has gone all-in on drones six times more attacks by drones under president obama than under george w. bush. pakistanis, 94% of them think drones kill innocent people. what do we get out of this? >> here's the trade-off. the problem is, this part of africa is one of the big problem spots for the u.s. intelligence community. i travel with general carter hamm, head of the military's africa command, this month and he told me this is one of the real blind spots for u.s. intelligence agencies. they don't have good ways of collecting intelligence. they don't have good spy networks on the ground. so introducing these drones will get a head start on trying to monitor some of these militant networks including the al qaeda affiliate there. >> people might say who cares about drones. lot of people in this country say look, we don't want to risk american lives. if we're going to have to fly over and kill quote, unquote bad guys with drones, so be it. let's do it. there are people on the left and the right who agree about that. they say what about the paki

as you want. in iran, in pakistan, in afghanistan, rape is a conscious tool of subjugation. they will face unequal risk. the third point, one we should give real thought to, is the stress on military families. we already lose a lot of officers at the major and kern colonel level, because of the strained families. for those military spouses who are not in combat, this is one more reason to worry about the high rate of family break-up that we already see among military personnel. >> david, forgive me, i think you're dead wrong on all those points. on the last, you're absolutely right. there's been a lot of strain on military families. the solution is not to deny women the opportunity to serve in combat positions, the solution is to rejigger the military personnel system to do a better job of making sure families do not have two parents at risk at the same time. and allow greater flexibility. on the issue of rape, if a woman is willing to assume the risk, just as a woman is willing to assume the risk of getting hurt or getting killed, just as our men in combat will assume that risk,

controversial in places like pakistan and yemen. that's likely to be a topic of conversation in the brennan hearing. the bureau of investigative journalism estimate that is american drones have killed as many as 171 civilians in yemen since 2002. the real story is in pakistan where nearly 1,000 people have been killed, civilians, since 2004 by american drones. >> secretary of state hillary clinton is back at work after being hospitalized for three days. after doctors found a blood clot in between her skull and brain. the staff welcomed her back to work today with fitting gifts. a football helmet, a jersey with the the 112, which symbolizes the number of countries she's visited as secretary of state. even if clinton's blood clot is still present, dr. david deaton tells "outfront" it can be regulated with medication. >>> and an "outfront" update on a story we have been following. french actor gerard depardieu met with french president vladimir putin over the weekend. the president gave him a passport and he was reportedly offered a job, i'm not joking here, to be cultural minister, bu

country elsewhere. >> right. although, when that didn't matter in pakistan, when they went after osama bin laden. the united states seems to go in when they want to go in. >> you know, in a situation like pakistan, where they took unilateral action, they were afraid, obviously, that the grade would have been compromised, had they let the local government know. this is a different situation now, and we've been working closely with the algerians, and i don't expect that this would be a unilateral type of situation. but as my colleague was saying, i know the offers are on the table, that, you know, any resources that can be brought to bear, to help the algerians resolve this thing are going to be readily available. >> all right. >> and this is a situation, quite frankly, that we might have been able to see coming. the person that was actually bearing responsibility for this, mokhtar belmokhtar actually made a video about a month ago saying, attacks are coming, expect it. so in essence, we should have been circling the wagons, expecting something like this to happen. >> all right. we

with it or it will be a safe haven like you see along the afghan/pakistan border. >> the can of worms is open. if we can't put the can back on how much involvement are you willing to stomach? are you willing to say we will put boots on the ground, something the obama administration does not want to do and the american people do not want to do right now? >> you have to ask. there are a whole series of options here that we can put into play. and it has to be a coordinated effort. this isn't just about mali. the french have very capable special forces. they are going to put hurt on these folks. there are things we can do for them short of boots on the ground. i would encourage the president to continue to do that. if you -- this is going to get worse. you cannot allow this to become a national security issue for the united states. i argue it has crossed that threshold. this area now attracting jihadists and they are really good at this stuff including hostage taking because they have been doing it for decades and have been the largest funder to al qaeda. this is a problem we have to deal
